Thought I’d post an small entry about vegetarianism (I thiiink I spelled that right) and what I am and eat. Let’s start with that you’ve got all kinds, Vegetarian, Vegan, Pescetarian, the list goes on.
Vegetarian; No meat, no chicken, no fish but you eat dairy products & eggs.
Semi-vegetarian; No chicken, No fish, but eat meat like once a week. + Dairy and eggs.
Vegan; No meat, no chicken, no fish, no dairy & no eggs.
Pescetarian; No meat, No chicken but you eat fish, dairy products & eggs.
Ovo-vegetarian; No meat, no chicken, no fish, no dairy but you eat eggs.
Pollotarian; No meat, no fish, no dairy nor eggs but you eat chicken.
Fruitarianism; Basically just having fruits, greens, berries & nuts.
I might be forgetting one, but I’ll add it to the list as soon as I remember. (:
I’m a vegetarian and semi-vegan you could say.
I eat; no meat, no chicken, no eggs nor dairy products but I do eat fish like once in a month if even that, I basically never have sushi even though I love it, but I’ll have baby clams every now and then, I used to eat baby shrimps but after this one time that I got the stomach flu after eating them have I freaked out whenever I go near them, so no shrimps for moi, the very thought of it just brings back bad memories and a flashback with lovely pictures of me and the toilet becoming besties for 2 days, I thought that throwing up every 4 min would be the death of me. Oh and I also eat tons of fruits and veggies.
As the caption say, it’s a lifestyle, not a diet for me. I’ve been a vegetarian for 5 years now and it was probably one of the best decisions I ever made, and I’ve been vegan since September and at first I’m not gonna lie it wasn’t easy but my strength and dedication took over and now I’m loving it. I’ve replaced everything with milkfree instead, milkfree butter, milkfree & glutenfree bread, soy drinks based on oats with vanilla taste, that are a delight to drink and highly recommended. And there are so many tasty ways and recipes to make if only people took the time to read and do research about it. It’s about living a long and healthy life.
If you’re going vegan, there are many vegetarian products, but make sure to read everything it contains, some usually have eggs or milk. The brand Anamma has great mini green burgers that are free from both eggs, milk & gluten.
The swedish grocery store Ica has soy meat with no eggs and milk, great for tacos, pasta, chili con “carne”, vegan style. It’s about being creative and using your brain, books and the internet! I try to help with posting recipes, hopefully it’ll inspire you guys! 🙂
